Product Details

TotalBoat Penetrating Epoxy is a low-viscosity wood rot restoration and repair solution that seals deeper & cures stronger than industry-leading penetrating epoxies. It has no VOCs, no odor & is 100% waterproof once cured.

This 2:1 system is ideal for restoring rotten or damaged wood, or sealing new wood for lasting protection against humidity, salt, mold & mildew. It works by gluing cellulose (wood) fibers back together, sealing a bare, porous wood surface from the inside out. Double the penetrating power by mixing acetone with the epoxy resin solution in equal volume. Easy to apply by brush, roller, or inject via syringe. Surfaces may be painted or varnished after light sanding.

Choose from Traditional (65-90 F) or Cold Weather (40-65 F) formulas in Pint, Quart, 1/2 Gallon & Gallon kits.

Info & Guides

NO VOCS, NO SMELL.

Cleanup is easy. Wear latex gloves, wash off with soap and water. No solvents required.


APPLICATION NOTE: The wood must be bare and unfinished. Also, TotalBoat Penetrating Epoxy will not penetrate and level well when applied over some stains. Always test an area first. DO NOT USE on top of Minwax oil-based stains.


TotalBoat Cold Weather Penetrating Epoxy is perfect for use during the colder seasons. Compared to our traditional TotalBoat Penetrating Epoxy, our Cold Weather formula offers similar performance characteristics, but cures completely and reliably in cooler temperatures. Its tack-free properties also allow you to sand sooner.

WARNING: TotalBoat Cold Weather Penetrating Epoxy should not be used as a fast-cure epoxy in warmer temperature conditions because doing so can be unsafe and result in premature exotherm, brittleness, and improper curing.

Application Temperature Ranges:

  • Traditional formula - 65-90°F
  • Cold Weather formula - 40-65°F

Great Stuff
By larryew from Lancaster, Pa.

Verified Purchase

This product was very easy to use and did what I wanted it to do. no fuss no mess. Will use it again. I liked the way it absorbed into the wood. I applied about 6 coats by brush, waiting between coats about 3 minutes between coats. And it dried clear! nice bonus.

Great product, poor handling.
By Bar top bert from Kansas City Mo

Verified Purchase

I really love the quality of this penetrating epoxy. It's working time and stability, clarity and coverage are all great. I wish the bottles were a little more "pour friendly" as the hardener glugs when it's poured and gets over everything around your cup. That aside, the only reason I'm giving three stars is for the quality I received one of my 2 kits in. The hardener had leaked in the box and unfortunately hardened the cap of the epoxy onto it. I was missing probably 10% hardener, which worked out because I probably wasted 10% of the epoxy cutting the lid off and transferring to a new container. Not really worth the hassle of returning, but something to consider. Keep in mind, I bought thick pour and table top as well. Probably 10ish gallons and this was only a problem on one hardener.

Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend to a friend

Great product for wood projects that will be outside
By YellerDan from Yellville, AR

Verified Purchase

Very easy to mix up a batch and apply to Red Cedar lumber. I'm applying it to the lumber I will be building a deck with. So far all the projects I've built for outside I have applied this epoxy too and they keep the same look through out the year. No fading, nothing.

Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend to a friend

Really good epoxy definitely will order again
By Petar Bozhanov from Westport WA

Verified Purchase

I used this epoxy to protect the plywood for my boat deck that I build. Epoxy took a little longer than expected to settle but that's because it was cold and dark but after all it got really hard as it's supposed to be !

This is the final result after the epoxy and then carpet

Red Oak patio table
By Joao from Richmond VA

Verified Purchase

Made a patio table from 6/4 red oak for a family member and wanted it to be able to stay outdoors year round. A friend told me about TOTAL BOAT penetrating epoxy. After discussing the application with total boat tech support, they were extremely helpful guiding me on proper wood prep application, preparing between coats and the need to apply a spar varnish (Goeam 2.0) for best UV protection. I applied 2 coats of penetrating epoxy and 3 coats of varnish. The table is finished but, still in my shop awaiting delivery to RI. I am extremely please with the results so far and can't wait to see how it performs in its final home. Total bolt folks are the best and extremely easy to work with and go the extra mile to provide a first time user with all the tricks and details to get the job done right. I will be a routine customer and will recommend total boat to my friends and fellow woodworkers.

Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend to a friend
